In 1999, Universal wanted to cash in the character again, so they put together an all-new show for Woody Woodpecker and his friends, called ''The New Woody Woodpecker Show'', animated by their in-house studio (most famous for ''WesternAnimation/{{Exosquad}}''), and aired on FoxKids until the block's demise in 2002. Woody was voiced by Creator/BillyWest, and the shorts actually had some top talents working on it, including former ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' staff members Bob Jaques and Mike Fontanelli. The show was rife with censorship and ExecutiveMeddling, as the former staff members can attest to. As a result, this revival was ultimately a failure (however the show still has its fan base), barely lasting around 50 episodes, some of which weren't even aired in the US (save for a brief release of the entire series on Netflix); currently, only 13 episodes are on Hulu, and only one episode of the series has been released on DVD.

* DestinationMoon: Makes an appearance in a brief animated segment, explaining rocket propulsion. Here we get a glimpse at Woody's fourth redesign, making him punier and cuter than before.

* GonkyFemme: Gorgeous Gal is a huge elderly featherless bird who wore a green dress, lots of jewelry and a white wig in the Woody Woodpecker short 'A Fine Feathered Frenzy.' She was so unattractive that when Woody saw her he turned white as a ghost. Despite her appearance, she has a lovely voice and her personality is flirty and romantic.

* NamesTheSame: "Bats in the Belfry" is a name that is shared with a Creator/HarmanAndIsing oneshot cartoon from the 40s. "Hassle in a Castle" is also very similar to the ScoobyDoo cartoon episode "Hassle in the Castle".



* NoFourthWall: As mentioned at the top of this page. In that same short, as if to drive the point home, he also did it again when he [[spoiler:literally joins the audience that was watching the short]].
* NoodleIncident: In ''International Woodpecker'', when Woody is telling Knothead and Splinter about the roles woodpeckers played in history. He suddenly lets slip something about France, and decides to leave that part aside. However, this is ultimately averted when the kids get curious and insist that he tells, and Woody does so.

* StairwayToHeaven: Done in the end of ''Wild and Woody'' Buzz Buzzard has just been crushed [[AnvilOnHead by a large object]], and he arrives at a lobby with elevators to both heaven and hell with Woody as the doorman: one opens and the angelic operator says "Going up?" and Woody forces it closed, the other opens and the demonic operator says "GOING DOWN?!" and Woody gives Buzz Buzzard a kick in the rear forcing him into [[{{Hellevator}} the elevator.]] This also happened earlier, at the end of the short ''Ration Bored.''

Despite this setback, his theatrical serials are still fondly remembered by classic animation fans and he is still the official mascot of {{Universal}} Studios to this day.[[note]]Though the position was stolen from him by ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTail'''s Fievel from the late 1980s into the 1990s- he then seemed to have earned it back, only for [[WesternAnimation/DespicableMe the Minions]] to snatch it from him in the 2010s.[[/note]] While the series was in a state of hiatus since then, a new CG feature length Woody Woodpecker feature, made by the studio Illumination, is [[http://www.cartoonbrew.com/feature-film/illumination-developing-cg-woody-woodpecker.html stated to be in the works.]] And as of October 2013, animator Bill Kopp, the creator of such shows as WesternAnimation/EekTheCat, [[http://blogs.indiewire.com/animationscoop/bill-kopp-signed-for-universals-woody-woodpecker is helming the project as director!]] Universal is also working on a [[http://www.cartoonbrew.com/feature-film/universal-making-live-actioncg-woody-woodpecker-feature-brazilians-141553.html live action/CGI hybrid feature]], but currently it is only planned for a release in Brazil--it is unclear if its the final result of the original movie project or its a separate project altogether.

* CaptainErsatz: Woody was ([[CharacterizationMarchesOn initially]]) one of the early WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck, and the "prototypes" of WesternAnimation/BugsBunny from the shorts "Porky's Hare Hunt" and "Hare-Um Scare-Um", both of which were directed by Ben Hardaway. The rabbit in the shorts not only shares [[MelBlanc the same actor]] as Bugs and Daffy, but even uses a laugh almost identical to Woody's, albeit not sped up.
